Refrigerating an uncooked egg

My husband is in the hospital and I want to make him dinner tomorrow if he comes home, without him having to worry about the baby while I'm cooking.
I was wondering if I made the batter for my salmon cakes, which contains egg, if I could just refrigerate it until I'm ready to cook it.

  • yes, you can, but whick it really well before you do the dipping. It may separate.

  • I don't see why you couldn't.
    I do it with cookie dough, and that has egg in it.

  • Yes, you can without a problem. The same way you can keep premade pancake batter in the fridge to use for breakfasts during the week. We do this all the time so we can have homemade pancakes quickly each morning. Like vbruno said, though, be sure to whisk it good before using. And, don't keep it for more than a week.

  • Sure, why not? Eggs keep over a month in the refrigerator. It will be fine.
